  • its a tightening feeling in your abdominal area it will tighten up and then release if it real laybor every minute from the start of one to the other true labor will not subside it will only get worse braxton hicks are speratic and only happen here an there call your ob if you are concerned but i think it is only braxton hicks good luck

  • I was at the hospital last monday and they told me I was having contractions, for me they felt like pressure on my bladder (like I had to pee NOW) then it would subside, for me these were not a big deal.
